    I've worked with many contractors over the course of my engineering career. For too many, their motto was, "Out the door before my s**t hits the floor." In other words, they are long gone and don't have to clean up the mess.

    I was reviewing the grounds map today, and I have a hunch that they will be routing all foot traffic, to and from the bus park, to the main gate. The pedestrian entrance via the gate due east of the bus park may be limited if not restricted. Again, that is just my hunch with nothing official behind it. I only say this because all the shuttle busses from the new Gray lot will be dropping off and picking up at the bus park.

    I knew I forgot something. Well said!! I've heard the same sentiment from more than one division staff member. The ghost of Rod Hightower still walks the halls in some areas

    *Sigh* I have contracted for studies done by undergraduates (graduate students aren't much better). By the time the work was "complete" I felt like I should have charged the school for teaching fees. "Have you thought about...?", "Did you talk to...?", "Explain to me where you got this data...", "No, Wikipedia is not an acceptable source." That said, some "professional" research institutes aren't much better.

    Wonder whose idea it was to encourage chapters to do massive land grab at Scholler. Also, from the way they were doing that, I think rules need to go back to the 20 x 30 camping area dimensions. There is going to be a lot of roped off and unused space from what I saw Friday and Saturday. IMHO

    Hey Skyfixer, Well I was there on Wednesday and I know that the space reserved for the chapters was done by the Chapter Office. Chapters are granted the “privilege” of requesting camping space in advance The designated areas you saw are getting parceled out to the various requesting chapters this week. Each chapter represents multiple campsites. I think it’s a fair process. Not all chapters live within immediate driving distance like the land grab types that can show up at 0200 opening day.

    Okay, Ill say it.

    EAA hates HATES H A T E S SOS Brothers. Remember the lawsuit a few years ago? Let's make 'em walk another mile for that beer.
    EAA is going to funnel EVERY SINGLE person through the givemeyourmoney gate. No more hopping a tram at the bus park and slinking into the turn around. Now we are all paying.

    Excuse me while I go reread Ron Wanttaj's rules of the internet. Obviously, I need to do so.

    Never mind. Forum moderators get the last word.
